Hundreds of parents, students, teachers and staff members work hard each year raising money through various PTO fundraisers.  Most of this money goes toward "PTO Enrichment Project Requests," which are grant requests submitted to the PTO by teachers and staff members.  Enrichment Project Requests are designed to enhance the educational experience of all students at UHS. See attachment for details
